Created in 1938 for the Italian Navy, the first Panerai watch was also the first military divers' watch. It is the history of this watch, along with the unique design, that appeals so much to watch enthusiasts. Faced with the dilemma of designing watches that divers could read while underwater, Officine Panerai devised a simple solution: make the watches extremely large. When international watch trends began to favor a larger watch, Panerai, the small Florentine company that had manufactured watches for both the Italian and the Egyptian navies, was rediscovered. Officine Panerai continues to demonstrate the principles that have always inspired the Panerai family: innovation, exclusivity, and quality. To view the complete line, visit the Panerai website.
